Recast "Sex and the City" and Win a Prize!

Recast "Sex and the City" and Win a Prize!

Every Wednesday on BuzzSugar, I post a Recast challenge, where I ask you to choose new actors for a classic TV show or movie. The reader who submits the best cast wins a BuzzSugar t-shirt!

Now, before some of you get all up in arms about this recast challenge idea, remember that this one was actually requested by Buzz readers! So, having just heard the news about the "Sex and the City" movie going into production, I'm making it a "SATC" kind of week. I understand that the original actors were perfect, but since you suggested this challenge, go to it! If you could recast the parts of Carrie, Miranda, Samantha and Charlotte, which actresses would you pick? And, based on the comments in today's post, let's also recast Mr. Big, Smith, Harry and Steve.

Leave your entry in the comment section below, and I'll pick one winner to feature Tuesday, July 10, complete with a "new" cast photo. To see a list of characters to recast and a photo of the BuzzSugar t-shirt,

Characters to recast:
Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker)
Miranda (Cynthia Nixon)
Samantha (Kim Cattrall)
Charlotte (Kristin Davis)
Mr. Big (Chris Noth)
Steve (David Eigenberg)
Harry (Evan Handler)
Smith (Jason Lewis)

okay I know that Samantha has blonde hair but I think that Angelina Jolie would do a damn good as her.

I think that this is a tough call, but the actors that I'd like to see recast in SATS would be as follows: Carrie: Natalie Portman Samantha: Sarah Michelle Gellar Charlotte: Anne Hathaway Miranda: Sarah Silverman Steve: Steve Carrell Smith: I'm stuck! Big: Justin Timberlake (could be interesting) Harry: Seth Rogen Now I can't actually see them all getting along, but it would be a funny show, wouldn't it? :)

Did anybody see this weeks episode of TBS's My Boys this week where PJ's friend from NYC came to visit and they were terrible cliche's of the SITC characters? It was hillarious.

I like Whiplash & RCC's ideas for this but I would never want to replace all the originals. It's impossible to improve on what we already know & love! :)

I made this a younger set of characters... but I like the mix. The actors and actresses here are capable of doing so many characters... I think it would be a fun show to watch. Carrie - Keri Russell Miranda - Selma Blair Samantha - Isla Fisher Charlotte - Natalie Portman Mr. Big - Ryan Gosling Steve - Elijah Wood Harry - Kevin Connolly Smith - Hayden Christensen Stanford - Kevin Zegers Aiden - Heath Ledger

Carrie: Sienna Miller (she is quite the fashionista!) Miranda: Laura Prepon (with the red hair, think That 70’s Show) Charlotte: Jennifer Morrison (Dr. Cameron, House) Samantha: Nicollette Sheridan (Sam was so the precursor to Edie) Mr. Big: Benjamin Bratt (handsome and mysterious) Steve: Jason Lee (dorky and hilarious, like in A Guy Thing) Harry: Kevin James (think Hitch) Smith: Kip Pardue (Sunshine from Remember the Titans!)

Carrie- Sarah Jessica Parker (No one can replace SJP as Carrie Bradshaw except Candace Bushnell herself. No one else could ever pull her off. Maybe Sienna Miller, but she is a bit young. She has a lot of living to do first. :) ) Miranda- Toni Collette Samantha-Kelly Carlson Charlotte- Katie Holmes* Big- George Clooney (the epitome of Mr. Big, if I do say so myself.) Steve- Jake Gyllenhaal (A bit young, but the sweetness and somewhat awkward charm is so Steve... and did I mentioned the incredible body under those t-shirts?) Smith- Paul Walker Harry- Paul Rudd *Trey - Tom Cruise (You have to agree that Tom frighteningly resembles Trey MacDougal in his relationship with Katie.)

See I thought Of Wentworth as Smith but isn't the beauty of the whole Smith/Sam relationship the age difference???? They were like Demi & Ashton before there was a Demi & Ashton. Wentworth is like 34 right?

Let me preface this by saying that I think that casting is half of what makes it a great show. Honestly, nobody else could be carrie. But for list purposes, here are a few ideas for a younger cast carrie-rachel mcadams(only she has the range it would take to perfectly ride carrie's up and downs) Charlotte-mandy moore(she could pull of that classic waspy look miranda-bryce dallas howard or allyson hannigan samantha-elisha cuthbert big-john stamos(sexy, mysterious quality) steve-milo ventimiglia smith-chris evans i have no harry, and i can't even begin to think who could play aidan!
